angeles and los angeles -- you would set up in los angeles and san francisco .- bir there might be a storm. there might be some malicious attack. that does not something i sense that engineers losing a lot of sleep over. there are not very good targets from a cybersecurity standpoint. they are highly secure. the equipment is very expensive. i talked to people and visited these places and saw the higher up the food chain i got, the less concerned they were about talking about them. the less concerned they were about the physical security. the greater concern was ignorance. if we do not know about these buildings and what goes on inside of them what the issues are facing those operators, the greater the threat is. the internet would be legislated in a way that is not the best thing for the healthy functioning of the network to be protected. >> you named your book "tubes." where does that name come from? >> the famous, and 2006 -- quote unstrung 2006. -- comes from 2006. this was the height of ignorance on washington's part. this is an example of the senate had responsible for legislating the
institution in san francisco. should they be required to adjust to this new health plan? >> the compromise is a reasonable one. >> madam leader? >> yes. >> would you support that if it is part of the package? >> i want the middle class to get a break. i would hope we could get the middle income taxes cut. it is important for us not to think that the payroll tax holiday is a substitute for real relief for middle income families in our country. in the absence of other things, which might have to be considered, i had hoped that two years would be enough. unfortunately, republicans in congress have stood in the way of many of the job initiatives that the president put forward that would have accelerated the growth that we think is possible. some of it is coming into play. that might be something we have to consider. >> speaker boehner earlier described there being a stalemate. do you think that we will get a deal last minute? >> last-minute is the last day of the month. i do not think that is right. we know what is at stake. everyone knows that we have to have cuts, growth, and revenue. why ar
article the major changes taking place in brooklyn, and he talks about sampras's go. -- san francisco. and the great advantage that the u.s. continues to have over other countries, that we have such innovation and talent and design skills and technological skills. and they tend to cluster in places like san francisco. this company that makes new packages for the ipad -- and again, compare it to the number of employees at foxconn, millions compared to maybe 2000. and then you are technologies like 3d printing and you're able to get from astra concept to prototype -- abstract concept to provide in very short order. changes everything so quickly. and by having this tightly connected supply chain, you can walk the floor and have better control. you can incrementally improve. in the old days, there was a curious about the life cycle of a product. it would come out and incrementally improve over a certain time frame and then after seven years it would be obsolete. that cycle has accelerated so much that if people want a new ipads or inouye iphone every couple -- or on your iphone every coup
, the gentlewoman from san francisco, and the minority leader, i'm delighted that she came down to engage us on this very important issue. the gentlewoman does recognize and know that the house on august 1, in fact, did exactly what she has suggested that they, and that is to take action on what the future tax rates would be in this country. and on a bipartisan basis, 256 -171, this house of representatives said, let's understand that now is a bad time to raise taxes on the american people. and let's extend for a period of time all the tax cuts which allow america to keep working. we passed it 256-171. mr. speaker, i'd like to ask unanimous consent that i insert into the record a chart that exists on the house budget committee that shows the choice of the futures, and what future was presented, if i could -- thank you very much. this slide that i've got that's on the house budget committeele is essentially about the current pathway the president would choose as outlined in his budget that the gentlewoman, ms. pelosi, spoke of that got no votes in the united states senate. not one vote. no vo
supported. nancy pelosi from san francisco, senator charles shumer, the chief messaging man in the senate, democratics caucus, have supported that threshold. people from wealthier districts and states -- in states tend to see the middle class differently than from other areas where cost of living is lower. >> that strategy, that support, rather, part of speaker boehner's strategy knowing he has built in support from senators and others? >> i don't know if i would call it built in support but it certainly causes a controversy or a possible split among the democrats. so it is an interesting tactic, a great chess move probably. but the thing is how many republicans consider boehner get onboard. we covered the caucus meeting -- conference meeting, rather, this morning in the capitol basement and i'd say members are kind of dazed and confused about this plan. many are looking for details. hardcore conservatives immediately rejecting it. people close to leadership voicing support. they called an emergency meeting at 5:00 p.m. today, the whole conference, to discuss details and try to advance th
in san francisco. the key thing is hurting the rest. look at the premiums that are being charged. if we can maintain that focus, the risk regiment focus that the fha has taken on, there is an argument to say, let's not over correct in a time when there is no support system coming down the pipe. >> you talk about the importance of having good underwriting standards. one of the other criticisms of fha is that it is a government agency that is not as nimble. long-term, if you have 3% down payment, it is one thing to trust that the lenders to use the program will operate according to the guidelines, but does the institution have the bandwidth to change circumstances? even if it were not as severe as 2006, say we go through a period where congress allows downpayment-funded assistance. how able is the fha to set those proper underwriting standards? >> there is no question that the fha any other agency needs to be more organized than what we have today. fhfa it is 80 years old. it has never required taxpayer money. the fact that we have a 1000- year flat and fha has plans for a 100-year flat,
and therefore it benefits all. host: writing in "the san francisco chronicle." guest: i would agree. i would agree only in small parts. first, the people on the amt that are left there never got the rate cuts in the first place. to say that they are at an advantage because they will not bear the price of the rate cut going away ignores the fact that they never got a rate cut in the first place because they were paying the higher of the two rates. the margins here are small. even when i paid the amt, my reality is not large. if the rates go up, i just switch. i would switch from the amt to the regular tax. i don't think this is a silver cloud here. what i would say is that those people who already have a cloudy situation in that they never got the bush tax cuts will not be harmed, but most people, this is not a good thing. host: mary, franklin, tenn., you are up next. caller:. for letting me have the line. i have a question and for mr. buckley. i have a little analogy for him. when you have a tv and do not put it in, doesn't come on at? >guest: i don't believe so. that caller: is what republi
practice in both san francisco and sacramento. i can attest to his prowess as an attorney because on one very interesting occasion, he represented me. [laughter] >> on a speeding ticket. [laughter] >> and got me off with a minimum fine. from 1965 to 1988, justice kennedy was a professor of constitutional law at the mcgeorge school of law, the university of the pacific located in sacramento. and a point of particular pride of mine is the fact that he provided valuable support to then governor ronald reagan on a number of legal issues as a volunteer lawyer. justice kennedy was appointed to the united states court of appeals for the ninth circuit in 1975 where he served for more than 12 years until president reagan nominated him as an associate justice of the u.s. supreme court. he took his current seat in 1988. in nominating justice kennedy to the supreme court in 1987, president reagan remarked that his career as a judge in the u.s. court of appeals for the ninth circuit, as a constitutional law professor, and in private practice was marked by a devotion for the simple, straightforward, a
's fought tirelessly to protect the environment. most especially in the sonoma coast of san francisco bay and hopefully the president will follow her lead and designate further protections of our ocean and marine habitat in that area of our precious coast. i am very grateful for the members for the work they have done for america's middle class and the struggles -- those who struggle to join our middle class. the work they have done on behalf of their constituents and on behalf of the citizens of this country. they all came here to achieve accomplishments, to achieve success on behalf of their constituents, on behalf of this country, and they've succeeded. and i want to thank them so very much for their service, for their sacrifice, for the ingenuity, their innovation and i would say with these three for their spirited, tough, harsh, relentless pursuit of what they believed in terms of public policy and on my own behalf, i want to thank -- on behalf of our delegation and tens of millions of constituents that we represent in california, i want to thank representative baca, berman, filner,
"reguaranteeless of politics." sam in san francisco, go ahead. >> i'm hoping that at some point the society will start addressing the root causes of this. i remember when columbine first happened and it was shocking for people. now this is happening basically every day. so many people are unemployed, the political system is not functioning, our media is not doing their job and people want to talk a defending themselves. what about addressing the root causes? the fact that society -- we don't even address mental health issues. they don't even address the mental health issues of the soldiers coming home. they encourage them not sign up. they deny them benefits, i think it takes a year to deny benefits for a returning soldier. >> no indications that the shooter was a veteran. we take a live look at the flag above the white house which has been lowered to half staff as ordered by the president. this is michael. hi, there. >> hi. i want to extend our families condolences to the families out there in connecticut. i just hugged my daughter and she has -- she is a kindergartener herself so we can f
